The Triple Jump is a special move used in the New Super Mario Bros. U game style. There are many harder tricks that are based around the Triple Jump.


The Triple Jump allows Mario to gain 5 blocks of height and can be started from the ground or from a wall jump. It will also cause Mario to perform a front flip. Mario is unable to start a Triple Jump if he is holding an item or not at maximum speed.
